I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of a harlequin axolotl. I just heard out about this type and am interested in seeing one. I know they are rare so i just want to see a picture of one. Thanks, Jordan

they're different looking. I don't know exactly what harlequins look like but the web site above has photos of a piebald.

From what I gather, Harlequins are mostly white with patches of color, while piebalds are lacking color cells in various patches.

Harlequins differ from piebalds in that the piebald is usually white with largish black 'splotches', whereas the harlequin is most commonly gold with smaller black 'dots' all over them, rather than just in one area, like the piebalds.
I do have a picture of a harlequin somewhere... I'll have to find it for u.

Mind you that harlequin and piebald are not reserved for just axolotls. Any animal can be harlequin or piebald. We had a large piebald deer who was half white (the rear end, unfortunately) and then normal colored in the front. In Michigan, albino animals are protected. According to the state's rules, any animal exhibiting any degree of albinism (piebalds, we had piebald horse who was white, red eyes, brown just on the tip of his ears) are protected.

I know a book that you can see cool coloured axolotls in its called axolotl care and breeding in captivity by Peter W. Scott. It has heaps of good info too. so you should check it out.

Stipe, instead of begging on the web board, I suggest doing a www.google.com search. Although due to their rarity, I doubt you'll find much.

Rita, sometimes they may have normal color genes, but a fluke in the way they're expressed.

Sadly, I still have no freaks.
